Workshop in Vancouver – Venue has changed

I arrived well in Canada seeing the longest immigration line ever – but luckily as the immigration process by itself is very efficient it didn’t take over an hour.

Webcast on 18-SEP: Three Reasons to Upgrade

You may have noticed that our Upcoming Events listing is a bit sparse due to preparations for OpenWorld. But, we have not gone completely silent; there are still Database Upgrade events available.
